Hi to the group.

I posted to the group a couple of weeks ago about wi-fi and Ubuntu installation.

I have an AMD 1100 mhz K7 Athlon  processor
60 hard drive Maxtor  Dual boot with Windows

The board is Amercan Mega trends  

NVIDIA Gforce 4mx4000 graphics card

I am using Gutsy Gibbon and  trying to install Netgear WG311 v3 pci adapter.

I install ndiswrapper through the package manager and it shows it is installed, I have tried various ways of installing the WG311 v3.ini file Ubuntu says it is installed but says it is the wrong driver.

      If I drag ndiswrapper from a cd onto the desktop and then extract it, what do I type to install it ?

      my problem is wrapping ndiswrapper round the .ini file.I have installed ndiswrapper.  I then do not know the syntax for installing the WGv3.ini file into the driver folder. Everything I type is wrong or not found even when I verify installation with ndiswrapper - the driver is not shown.

      I have then done lshw -C network
      it the responsds with 

      *-network UNCLAIMED

      description: ethernet controller
      product: 88w 8335 [LIBERTAS] 802.11b/g Wireless
      Vendor:Marvell Technology group Ltd
      Physical ID: 11
      Bus info pci at 0000:00:11.0
      Version 03
      Width: 32 bits
      Clock: 66 mhz
      Capabilities: Bus master cap_list
      Configuration: latency =64

      I am comfortable installing packages, the problem is installing from the cd drive and the path required to install.

      Ndiswrapper is on a cd with the latest drivers for the pci adapter.

      All help gratefully received

      John Davis
